If you believe in god what changed after you went to church on Christmas? Or was it "status quo"?

I'm trying to figure out why it would be an issue if Obama went to church or not...must be some LOGICAL reason...

To me it doesn't matter if he went to church or not, you'll have to find someone else for that one.

I'm afraid your search will be in vain. I did receive a PM from the Church Lady saying she had a problem with it.

It never should be an issue if a president worships God or not. It is a non-issue for Americans who believe in our nation not some religious group. Honestly, I don't think Obama even beleieves in God just like most presidents; so hypocritical & unnecessary to our nation.

Obama portrayed himself as VERY religious and that he worship the Almighty God regularly.

Yeah, I'm sure nobody would have a problem with that if it's true.

Did Reagan go to church? Or Carter? Did the press actually check to see if former presidents actually went to church? It seems so pointless.

Carter did. As I recall he even taught Sunday school. Clinton loved going to black churches. I think Reagan mostly just chatted with Billy Graham on the phone in lieu.
